All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Unexpectedly, Texas became a popular sensation prior to the release of White on Blonde when Chris Evans made the soulful single "Say What You Want" the de facto theme song on his morning program on Radio 1. On the strength of his support, Texas was catapulted to previously unthinkable success, and the majority of the fans who thought the number one single was fine shouldn't have been disappointed with the full-length album. A combination of roots-rock and soul, White on Blonde occasionally has more style than substance, but Sharleen Spiteri's gorgeous vocals and the band's professionalism make the record a charming, ...

    A classic...some bands should be so lucky...

    Sharleen Spiteri and band give us one of the best and most divine albums of the 90s. This band is huge in Europe and deserve world-wide renown...this could be the one to push them into that stratosphere! My advise would be to check out their greatest hits and if you enjoy that, then go back in their catalogue and check out the albums. You won't be sorry. Texas, please come play on a stage near DC soon!!!

    Don't Buy it - MP3 it...

    If you haven't bought this incredable CD yet, you should at least have the dignity to MP3 it from Napster. This album is without a doubt one of the coolest albums to be heard in the 1990's. Give it a shot and then move on to The Hush...

    THANK GOD!

    by accident i found out about texas -- they were included in the Q magazine's best of 97 CD -- and i was grateful for my good fortune ever since. in my humble opinion, this is one of the best CDs of the decade; fresh, confident, and with plenty of style to spare. let other bands worry about saving the britpop business; all texas has to do is to simply continue doing what they do best: create music that is honest and heartfelt; this is something wonderful that everyone can relate to. thank you for reading.
